This is the Blender Documentation’s section on particle effects. Near the bottom there’s a little something about explosions.

As for a good shocwave effect, you can find a tutorial at http://www.elysiun.com/tutorials.php?id=5

Most of it will just be playing around to get a really good shockwave effect that has depth.

You mean like this…

It’s just a little something I threw together. Look for a surprise at about frame 10 (hehe). Just hit the anim button and when its done click play.

EDIT:

LOL, looks a lot better with MBLUR & OSA on. Here’s a video:
